Air Quality Advisory – Southern BC

Hello all……

Not that you haven’t noticed, but the smoke conditions on Anarchist Mountain are prevalent over a large area of Washington and British Columbia. Environment Canada advises that air quality is poor, and out-door activities in the Southern Okanagan should be restricted where possible. Persons with respiratory conditions are particularly advised to be prudent with outdoor exposure.

The smoke is originating from fires in Washington state with a South Easterly flow of air expected to continue for several days. Environment Canada predicts improving conditions near the end of next week, with possible rain late in the week.
